The Earth Shakes in Calhoun in 1897

(06/04/2002)

Transcribed by Norma Knotts Shaffer from microfilm of the Calhoun Chronicle dated 6/8/1897.

An earthquake shock was very perceptibly felt here last Monday.  A general inquiry, "did you feel the shock?" went the rounds.

The little shaking the earth got the other day reminds us that we are liable to be swallowed up any time.
